Mini Excavator Lift Capacity Chart

The Mini Excavator delivers high performance in a compact design to help you work in the tightest applications.

The Mini Excavator features the following:

Fingertip control for the boom swing and auxiliary hydraulic functions makes operation easier while providing more room on the floor for the operator’s feet.

Compact Radius Design lets you work within confined areas. The radius of the upper body stays within 100 mm (4 in) of the undercarriage so the operator can concentrate on the work being done without having to worry about the back of the machine.

High digging forces, fast cycle times, and excellent stability boost your productivity.

Over 200 degrees of bucket rotation provides greater material retention during truck loading and easier flat wall digging without having to reposition the machine.

100% pilot controls and a load sensing hydraulic system

How much weight will a mini excavator Lift?

Your mini excavator should have access to machine lift charts to help make this determination.

Standard features

  • Security System: A standard anti-theft device uses a 5 digit alphanumeric password that is required to start the machine (when the security system is enabled).
  • Adjustable Work Tool Auxiliary Flow Control: Simple adjustability of the hydraulic flow going down the boom and stick to the work tool. This is done by a simple selection from a flow of 1-15.
  • Continuous Flow: Set the auxiliary flow in any direction and at any speed simply, safely, and easily on the right-hand joystick.
  • Economy Mode: Save up to 20% fuel while maintaining high productivity with a push of a button.

It’s hard to explain the different size categories of a mini excavator, the common jobs they’re used for, how they compare to standard excavators, how to choose the right mini excavator for the job, and more.

The mini excavator has similar capabilities to an excavator, with the added benefit of being able to work in small spaces.

The mini excavator goes by many names, including small excavator, mini excavator, and compact excavator.

No matter what you call this machine, the small compact excavator is small enough to do any kind of precise digging.

Mini excavators are rated with an operating weight of less than 10,000 pounds. The smallest mini excavator can go through a door. Their bucket sizes can range from 12 to 24 inches and can always be replaced with another attachment to tackle any job.

However, many companies label their mini excavators as compact excavators. Compact excavators typically have a cutout weight of 18,000 pounds. However, most companies tend to lump mini excavators and compact excavators into the same category.
